Homemade Ritz Crackers

"I came pretty close to getting the Ritz cracker right. The real Ritz cracker is slightly more fluffy, but the taste of mine is spot on (though most tasters thought that it was slightly better). Now you can enjoy Ritz crackers without high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils. I say \"you\" because I don’t want to see another Ritz cracker ever again—too much taste testing!!

"While this homemade Ritz cracker recipe is a Cupcake Project original, I used Jeffrey’s recipe from What’s 4 Dinner Solutions as a starting point. Huge thanks go out to him."

Cupcake Project began in 2007 as Stefani Pollack's journey to master the cupcake (for the full back story, see her post about the nine month adventure preparing to bake cupcakes for her friends’ wedding). As the home to over 200 cupcake recipes, Cupcake Project has become an encyclopedia of what the cupcake can become. Stef’s cupcakes range from basic and brilliant (like the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake) to downright bizarre (Cupcakewurst).
